New Year's Tree

I like to change things out after Christmas. I enjoy the Christmas decor while it's up, but then after Christmas, I like to put things away and return to a "winter" theme in my decor. I purposefully chose to limit my actual Christmas decorations this year and focused on just adding bits and pieces into my surroundings. One thing I really love is my New Year's Tree, that I put together a few years ago. I still wanted some sparkle and whimsy after putting away the Christmas things, and so my little tree was conceived. Stark pewter branches are bejeweled with glitter snowflakes, tiny bells, antique watch faces, blue miniature Shiny Brites, and little doves. It's become my way to usher in the New Year with prayers for peace, joy, and God's blessing.

This year I added two new ornaments found on sale after Christmas,
depicting old clocks.

(all other items thrifted from the fleas)

and a vintage clock face.

It's here in the Entry, 
where it's a reminder of a fresh new beginning.

I you'd like to see the original post from December 2009,
 with my thoughts on spending our Time,

Thank you all, for your sweet friendships.
What a blessing you are in my life.
